Budd Lake Fire Department Conducts Tender Drill

Posted on June 1, 2013

Saturday morning May 4th 2013 Budd Lake and Flanders Firefighters along with several mutual aid fire companies participated in a large scale tender drill in a section of town where recently a home was lost to fire that area of town is without hydrants so to calm the fears of the public firefighters honed their skills and residences got to see firsthand how water is delivered to their part of town. Water was brought in from the lake by the Budd Lake Beach where fire company engines drafted from the lake to provide the needed water. After flowing several thousand gallons of water the drill was over and all fire fighters went back to the Budd Lake Fire House for lunch and a debriefing of the drill.
